INFORMATION SYSTEMS As the AIESEC network continue to expand, and Internet speeds and usage becomes faster and more accessible, there was a growing need to develop information management systems that would connect the network. Development of Insight into Insight II happened in a year, accompanied by a complex data migration process and bug fixes into in house server hosting. AIESEC.net was also launched as a membership portal along with Insight II during IC 2000 in Scotland. In 2003, on an average day, AIESEC.net had over 2500 users using the platform, reflecting the need for such a resource. Insight II then underwent continuous enhancements in providing a better interface for its users including those with less infrastructure to have better access. Examples were the new functionality of ‘on hold’ forms meant to reduce the time and communication effort to complete exchange procedures as well as files which enables users to obtain updated information on global data and their exchange performance. In 2004, the system migrated into AIESEC.net and developed into InsightXP. One of the biggest changes the Global Information System had apart from its constant improvements was a decision taken to invest heavily to provide for the needs of AIESEC as part of a long-term Information System (IS) plan. This plan included MyAIESEC.net; an evolution from a community-based system to what is called a user-centric system because it is designed specifically for the users’ requirements. MyAIESEC.net, was launched in December 2007. 36
